Kathesimbhu Stupa, Kathmandu

A lovely sign with a representation of the Kathesimbhu Stupa in Central Kathmandu. Said to have been built around 1650, this stupa is a small replica of the much larger, and older, Swayambhunath that rises on a hill two kilometres to the west of the city centre (the name itself is a contraction of Kathmandu and Swayambhu). Those who cannot climb the 365 steps to Swayambhunath can earn the same merit by performing rites at Kathsimbhu.

Location: Kathmandu
